I have owned this phone since October 2009! It's starting to feel a little outdated, of course, but it still does an admirable job! First off I have an iPod Touch and the differences with the screen are minimal. The Nokia resistive touchscreen I actually like better because of the many different ways to use it. I use my nails mostly and I find it makes it easier than using my fingerpad on the Touch because I can get in small corners and boxes. I use my stylus every so often, mostly on the sticky note app, and it's cool. I never use the plectrum thing. I use Swype now and it's really good. I like that it has a lanyard the I loop on my wrist and gives me added security I won't drop my phone. I can also hang small things from the lanyard.
The update last year almost killed my phone and did kill a memory card, but after I worked out all the kinks, it really made the phone more user friendly with kinetic scrolling and changing the homescreen. Free Ovi Maps is awesome! The music player is loud and sounds better than my Touch.
Just to let you know I've really enjoyed this phone. Looking forward to 2012 when Nokia and windows get together and also Clear Black screens and increased phone memory. I will upgrade then.
i love this phone. and eventhough this isnt the best there is today and even if i've been using this phone since (secret)... im not thinking of getting a diff phone.. this phone isnt too complicated and i love it being like that!

I just bought this nokia 5800 xpressmusic about 5days ago. I just found out that the battery did not last longer,just around 6-7hours. I just use the phone for messaging but why the battery can not last longer? Is it normal or there is something wrong with the battery and should i change the battery immediately?
